Description

Following a six year hiatus, ERIC CLAPTON’s CROSSROADS GUITAR FESTIVAL has returned re-energized with outstanding performances by CLAPTON, JAMES BAY, JEFF BECK, DOYLE BRAMHALL II, GARY CLARK JR, ROBERT CRAY, SHERYL CROW, ANDY FAIRWEATHER LOW, PETER FRAMPTON, VINCE GILL, BUDDY GUY, SONNY LANDRETH, LIANNE LA HAVAS, LOS LOBOS, JOHN MAYER, KEB’ MO’, BONNIE RAITT, ROBERT RANDOLPH, TEDESCHI TRUCS BAND, JIMMIE VAUGHAN, MARCUS KING BAND AND MANY MORE.

This epic gathering of amazing guitar talent, curated by guitar hero Eric Clapton (the only three-time inductee to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), spanned two days of incredible live music. Each session lasted for over four hours and featured performances by some of the greatest guitar players alive. And just to add to the almost surreal, one-of-a-kind happenings, music fan and comic genius Bill Murray reigned as the master of ceremonies both nights, donating his time for the cause – as did all the musicians as well.

The Crossroads Guitar Festival is a fundraiser for Clapton’s rehab facility on the Caribbean island of Antigua. Since recovering from his own drug addiction years ago, Clapton has been supportive of other recovery programs; he founded the Crossroads Centre Antigua facility in 1998. He has put together the guitar festival every few years at various locations. It is an extremely hot ticket for an event that happens so rarely – this was the first one in six years. Now that Clapton is near the end of his touring career, the opportunities to see him perform with his band or with other guitar greats is very limited.  There may never again be such an amazing collection of guitar talent on one stage. The 2019 Crossroads Guitar Festival was an incredible gathering of many of the best guitarists in the world. Eric Clapton may be near the end of his illustrious career, but he still has the world-famous chops that have prompted many witnesses to his talent over the years to declare, “Clapton is God.” In addition to his astounding skill, he is incredibly generous and recognizes other great players. By putting together the Crossroads Festival, he gives fans the gift of enjoying this unbelievable assembly of world-class guitar talents and at the same time supporting a noble cause. Hopefully, Slowhand will do it again in a few years.
